FARMINGTON — A warrant has been issued for one of the men charged in a North Salt Lake home invasion.
Jarrod Baty, 30, failed to appear for a sentencing hearing in 2nd District Court. As a result, the court ordered a $5,000 cash-only bench warrant for Baty. He had pleaded guilty to one count of possession of methamphetamine in March.
“I heard that he’d failed to appear for a hearing in a Salt Lake Case,” said Brandon Poll, from the Davis County Attorney’s Office. “I anticipated that he wouldn’t appear for ours.”
Baty is suspected to have entered a North Salt Lake home in January along with Andrew Glenn Crowe, 43, and AJ Robert Ford, 23. Witnesses say that the three men took a flat-screen TV, a Playstation, a laptop and other items from the house. Police later found all three items in a truck belonging to the trio.
At a hearing late last week, Crowe pleaded guilty to one count of theft and one count of possession of a firearm by a restricted person. Ford pleaded guilty to those same charges on March 6. Though both men were sentenced to prison, both are already serving sentences for charges unrelated to the case. Their new sentences can be served concurrently with the previous sentences.
Poll said that the Davis County Attorney’s Office attempted to subpoena Baty as a witness for one of his co-defendant’s cases, but wasn’t able to.
